Who would have thought that the taste of crunchy cauliflower mixed with salty cashews and sweet peas would taste so perfect together! The velvety texture of the mayonnaise mixed with frozen peas is flavory! This one is super fast and super easy to make!
We all have those recipes from our childhood that stay in our mind as we grow older and are a part of our “go to” recipes. Well, this is mine. Cauliflower, Cashew and Pea Salad. YUM!! So perfect for these hot summer days! Also great for a picnic!
My mom used to make this when I was a little girl. I remember the first time she asked me to try a bite after she made a fresh batch and I’m like, “No way….no way! It has cauliflower and peas in it, are you serious?!” I was 8 years old and that’s a typical reaction from an 8 year old. But, because she was my mom and I was a good little girl, I took a bite to be her taste tester. And it was FABULOUS!
I fell in love with this dish that day. Mom used to make this for picnics and spring and summer get togethers with family and friends. And I’ve been making it ever since!
This one is so super easy to make. You are literally just throwing ingredients together and stirring. That’s it. Super easy and no stress! I love the texture of this Cauliflower, Cashew and Pea Salad. It know it sounds a bit weird to add frozen peas to this salad recipe, but those little frozen guys make this dish! I mean, look at the yumminess of all the ingredients in this salad!!
This is definitely one of my favorite side dishes for spring and summertime! And yes, Gluten Free! Oh…and here’s a tip for you… I like to go light on the mayonnaise with this recipe. So I tend to yield to the 1/4 cup mayonnaise so it barely coats the other ingredients. This dish is meant to be light, so don’t overdo it on the mayonnaise!
Enjoy this one and Happy Eats!
